An Ounce of Prevention

I'm so thrilled that spring is upon us. I love what spring brings: warm days with chilly nights, blooming azaleas, and the first sweet strawberries.

What I'm not thrilled about is the cloud of pollen that carries with it misery. I'd like nothing more than to take a deep breath without sneezing afterward. Unfortunately, there's not a lot I can do about the pollen. What I can do is take some preventative measures inside my house: change air filters, evaluate the cleaning products I use, and give my house a good scrub down. I've also checked out a few books to see what I'm missing.

If you want to take some preventative measures of your own, check out some of the books in our collection.
